Justin Richie: Analytics is equal parts communication, design and technology
Data is all around us, and it’s driving how business and individuals make more intelligent decisions. The biggest challenge now is this: how do we communicate complex analytics to all these parties? Data scientist Justin Richie walks us through how the data science field must pay equal attention to communication, design and technology.
